I'm not making a fuss, just reporting the news. Might even indulge if it's where I think it is on Black Watch.

Is Nathan Philpott still visiting these boards?

There was a flurry of posts in July last year for Nathan, but nothing recently. Has he stopped visiting or am I looking in the wrong place?

Thanks
